Striving for Inclusive Excellence in the Classroom and Beyond
The Center for Teaching, Research & Learning (CTRL) is committed to fostering an inclusive community of faculty at American University and is continuously working on helping faculty develop skills that serve the goals outlined in AU’s Plan for Inclusive Excellence.
We host panel discussions and workshops on various topics related to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and you can request a meeting with one of our Instructional Designers or with our Inclusive Pedagogy Faculty Fellows to discuss topics that are relevant to your own teaching.
